Opera browser web addresses

The browser company has partnered with Yat to integrate its emoji system in Opera’s browsers on Windows, Mac, Android and iOS. Opera users can now access emoji-based web addresses and register their unique strings of emojis as their personal domains.

Oslo, Norway and Nashville, TN. (February 14, 2022) – Opera, the company behind the popular, eponymous multi-platform web browser, has become the first browser to enable emoji-only-based web addresses, to bring a new level of creativity to the internet.

For the first time in the history of the internet, users will be able to navigate the web by entering a string of emojis into the URL bar instead of letters and words.

The partnership marks a major paradigm shift in the way the internet works,” says Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera.


Web browser company Opera said Monday it will enable emoji-only based web addresses “to bring a new level of creativity to the internet.” The integration is part of a partnership with Yat, a company that sells URLs with strings of emoji in them.

“It’s been almost 30 years since the world wide web launched to the public, and there hasn’t been much innovation in the weblink space: people still include .com in their URLs,” Jorgen Arnesen, executive vice president of mobile at Opera, said in a press release.

Yat pages are unique domains generated when someone purchases a string of emoji (which itself is called a Yat). The owner of a Yat can create an NFT of their emoji string, and the company plans to eventually let users connect their Yats to electronic payments.

How does any of this work? Well, Opera’s desktop web browser essentially now integrates with Yat’s API.

That people can even buy emoji in the first place might come as a surprise, but Yats aren’t themselves new (and to be clear: Yat users are paying to have Yat, a Nashville-based private company, associate them with its emoji; and crucially not claiming the emoji as their own in any context that doesn’t involve Yat or the Yat API). Emoji strings have sold from anywhere from a few dollars to, in rare cases, hundreds of thousands.

    About Yat:

    Yat Labs is the inventor and custodian for Yats – a self sovereign identity solution based on emojis. Emojis are used to convey emotion, tell stories, connect, and share interests in beautifully simple ways, making Yats a brand-new way to express oneself online. Yats have exploded in popularity since their launch on February 1, 2021 and are currently being used by artists such as Lil Wayne, Common, G-Eazy, Questlove, Kesha, YFN Lucci, Disclosure, and Mack Maine.

    For example, type www.opera.com and press Enter to navigate to the Opera Software homepage.

    Default search engine

    Opera’s default search engine is Google, but you may prefer to search using DuckDuckGo, Amazon, or Wikipedia. To change the default search engine:

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Under Search engine, select your preferred search engine from the dropdown menu.

    Custom search engines

    In addition to Opera’s default search engines, you can set up the combined address and search bar to return results from other search engines.

    It’s new, it’s easier and more fun” The emojification of Opera is possible through a partnership with Yat, the company that allows you to own personalized strings of emojis. The emoji-centric integration makes it easier for anyone on the internet to find and be directed to Yat pages, which are unique domains that are generated when a Yat is created from a personalized string of emojis.

    Users can customize their Yat page or redirect it to anywhere else on the web. Artists from the music world were among the first to invest in and use their Yats.

    For example, Lil Wayne’s Yat page directs users to his record label, and Steve Aoki’s takes you to his website.

    On its default setting, it cannot block all malicious websites, only determining a few web pages to be harmful to users’ devices. Getting an antivirus program will be necessary given that Opera slightly lacks the proper means to protect user data. In terms of speed, this browser is no geezer. On average, Opera can fully load pages in around 4.5 seconds.
    Pretty impressive! This browser is one of the few navigators on the market to occupy a smaller space on your computer.

    Where can you run this program?

    What’s good about Opera is that it runs on almost any device. Windows and Mac users can easily install it on their computers as it as it is fully supported by their operating systems. You can also use Opera on both iOS and Android handheld devices.

    If you also want to see complete URLs in Opera address bar, check out following simple steps:

    1. Launch Opera web browser, click on Opera button and then click on Settings option. Alternatively you can directly launch Settings page by pressing Alt+P keys together.

    2. Now scroll down to bottom and enable “Show advanced settings” checkbox.

    3. It’ll turn a few advanced options on in Settings page. Now look for “Show full URL in combined search and address bar” option.

    It’ll be present under “User interface” section.
    Just enable the option.

    4. That’s it.

    Many of you know that I don’t use Opera web browser as my primary browser, that’s why there are very few articles written about Opera here at AskVG. But I always try my best to write articles about Opera whenever I come across new tips-n-tricks of Opera.

    Yesterday our reader “TheAslan” notified me about the new version 21 of Opera which comes with some new features such as Aura technology, etc. When I went to Opera blog to find out what’s new in Opera 21, I found an interesting feature related to the address bar.

    Opera web browser doesn’t display the full URL of webpages in address bar.

    Furthermore, emojis embedded on web pages now link to the corresponding Yat page automatically. So, any time Disclosure’s Yat 😎🎵😎is featured anywhere on the internet (including this press release), it automatically links to their Yat page.

    Embracing of emojis as a form of expression is a further step in Opera’s commitment to being at the forefront of innovation. The company’s browsers come with a set of unique features including a free built-in no log browser VPN, ad blocker with tracker blocking as well as with direct access to a set of messengers including WhatsApp, Telegram and others.

    It also includes built-in access to music streaming services (Apple Music, Spotify, TIDAL, YouTube Music, Gaana), Twitter and Instagram.
